I have been given a Zanussu Fridge Freezer. The freezer

Customer Question

I have been given a Zanussu Fridge Freezer. The freezer initially worked OK but the fridge has not worked correctly since I obtained the appliance. Is there a cheap remedy for this or do I cut my losses and dispose of it.This morning I found that the freezer was also not working.

Can you tell me if the motor ever switches off and if not is the motor at the back hot to the touch?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
We had the appliance on setting 6 in the fridge and certainly the freezer worked initially. I don't know about the motor as the appliance was switched off immediately I realised the problem this morning but the grid at the back was certainly warm to the touch.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Just plugged the appliance in and switched it on but no sound from the motor which perhaps indicates that it has burnt out. What do you think?
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 4 months ago.

Do you have a interior light on?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 4 months ago.

OK can you hear a clicking noise from the back every few minutes?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No sound at all.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 4 months ago.

OK do you have a fast freeze or super freeze switch?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
There is a switch in the fridge which glows orange and this was on all the time when the appliance was working but the fridge still didn't work and the "Too Warm" message was always on.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 4 months ago.

OK but did it cause the motor to run?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
It must have done because initially the freezer worked OK.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 4 months ago.

OK can you feel any heat from the motor?
